Rain Gutter Bookshelves

You know how blog surfing works, you end up in places and you have no idea how you got there.  Usually I see a lot of stuff I like, but this one, I HAD to make!  I had been looking for great shelves for a while.  I actually bought some from Pottery Barn, but only 2, I didn't want to fork over $300 for 6!  So when I saw this, it was just perfect!!

I measured the wall I was going to put them on and went to Lowe's and bought the pieces and end caps.  And boy did I get a funny look when I told the guy who asked if I needed a cart that I only needed a few pieces they were for bookshelves, ha!  Doesn't he know that I frequent hardware stores, but all for craft reasons?!

I measured, sawed, and screwed for the next hour and then I had a wall of books that I just LOVE!


Here is a view from the side, it was hard to decorate the wall, because the door opens directly to the wall, so a big bookshelf was just too bulky there.

Add some vinyl to complete the area!
